VIAIR compressors have a variety of applications across many industries. Our case studies show one of the many ways our compressors are used in the field by our customers.
VIAIR Maintains Proper Pressure in Industrial Water Trucks for Construction Industry
The construction industry establishes proper infrastructure for land, alteration, and repair of buildings, structures, and other real property. One of VIAIR’s customers for almost 10 years is a manufacturer of truck bodies and trailers in the construction industry that has been in business for over 70 years. One of their specialty vehicles is a 2,000 or 4,000-gallon water truck. The truck is used for large-haul water projects paired with a VIAIR Compressor that has a 100% duty cycle paired with a 1-gallon air reservoir tank. This combination of products ensures the correct water pressure is being fed through the multiple spray nozzles and water cannons. With the addition of a 1-gallon air tank, the compressor will run before reaching cut out pressure.
One of the main applications of our compressors and air tank in the water trucks is to compact the soil on the construct site properly. Water trucks carrying a 2,000-4,000-gallon tank and a VIAIR C Model compressor and air tank are easily able to pack down dust by using grading equipment to level and prepare the soil for work. The soil must be compacted to create flat, even ground at construction sites so buildings, roads and bridges can be built safely. Too much water can make the soil sludgy and unstable. Too little water will not let the dry particles abide by each other. Water trucks provide a portable ready water source with the right amount of liquid needed to maintain good water to soil ratio and create strong and stable compaction.
Another function of our air compressor and air tank is to ensure a safe and healthy environment for construction work. Construction sites are known to be less than ideal and can kick up a lot of dust that could disrupt future work progress. Dusty job sites can slow down work progress and increase health risks for workers. That’s why water trucks combined with a VIAIR solution are used to dampen the dust and remove them from the air that workers are breathing.
As one of the best-known manufacturers in construction, they carefully select which products will be included in their water trucks. Only the most ingenious solutions to be considered comprise of –
- Innovation: VIAIR compressors bear creative mobile pneumatic solutions that assist with efficiency and accomplish the task quickly.
- Quality: VIAIR compressors are tested for quality and held to a high degree of excellence.
- Dependable: VIAIR compressors are reliable and have a high functioning rate that our customers know and depend on.
The construction manufacturer chooses to use VIAIR air compressors in their industrial water trucks due to our compressors’ performance and value. VIAIR compressors are known for quality and dependability operating in almost any environment out in the field.
